Roof Inspections in Milwaukee
Inspecting Chimneys and Shingles in Wisconsin
Your home’s roof is what keeps your family dry and comfortable even during harsh Wisconsin weather like snow and rainstorms. Wall to Wall Home Inspections offers comprehensive exterior home inspections, including roof and chimney inspections. Our certified inspectors use the latest technology and techniques to safely examine roofs.
The shingles on your roof work with the siding to protect your home’s exterior. They keep the building insulated, direct water to the gutters to stop moisture from getting inside, and add to the outward appearance of your house. Our inspections ensure the roof is functioning correctly by checking shingles for damage.
Roof Shingle Damage
- Denting or cupping
- Granule loss
- Raised staples/nails
- Thermal splitting
Sometimes a single shingle can come loose for no reason. Other times, shingle damage is an indicator of larger roof problems.

Animals might damage the interior of a chimney by trying to build a nest. Freezing and thawing ice can ruin the masonry around a chimney and let water in. Blockages to the system mean smoke might ventilate back into your home, making it hard to breathe and leaving smoke stains all over walls and ceilings.
